This 24 day adventure can best be described as a journey to the top of Peru. Throughout this trip, you will see so much that you will be reflecting on the experience long after you’ve returned home. We will venture from the Peruvian capital city of Lima to the summit of the highest peak in the country: Huascaran (6,768m). Typically that journey alone would be enough to make for a memorable and thrilling adventure. However, on this trip, you will also have the opportunity to climb to the summits of Pisco (5,752m) and Alpamayo (5,947m) as well.

Furthermore, you will also get to visit several different places over the course of the trip, from the city of Huaraz (3,100m), which you will be given a few days to explore, to Cashacampa (2,900m). You will also get to visit places like the lake 69 (4,600m), Wilcacocha (3,800m), Llamaccoral (3,760m), and so much more.

Since the majority of this trip takes place at high altitudes, you will be given sufficient time at the beginning for proper acclimatization. Thus ensuring that you have a comfortable and safe experience.

When it comes to the peaks you will be scaling during this adventure, all 3 of them are special in their own unique way. Like people, these peaks each have their own personalities. As a result, climbing one is never like climbing the other. However, when you reach the top, each peak, especially Huascaran, will reward you with a view you will never forget.

If you are looking for a true mountain adventure in a fantastic range, then this is the trip for you. For 24 days, you will get to climb to the top of not only the Cordillera Blanca, but the entire country of Peru. To join me, all you have to do is send me a request.

You can also join me on this 19 day expedition to the summits of Yanapaccha, Pisco and Alpamayo.

About the Guide

 
 

IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Perú, based in Huaraz, Cordillera Blanca.

I like mountaineering and skiing. I recently completed the ski certification in Argentina, so I'm one of the few fully IFMGA certified guides in Peru. I've also guided in Ecuador, Bolivia, Argentina and the Alps.

Some of my favourite trips are climbing in the Dolomites, Fitz Roy in El Chalten, and mountain biking across Peru, Bolivia and Chile.
